I can see that they based Norseman as their ideal....

The run looked hard.I would want to be tied to my support runner for that one.......

Navigating off a mountain looks really hard - imagine doing that as part of the IM run - when your brain is cabbaged ! Fegans done it hasn't he ?

Hmmm, this was a possiblity for next year, will have to watch it later.

Plenty of shivering opportunities....

don't think Fegan's done it - he did City to Summit this year - similar but different and probably not so hard even with a run up to the top of Ben Nevis and back down after riding from Edinburgh.  

a friend did Celtman last year (1st year of it) and said it was the most brutal IM distance he'd done, and he's done a few.

it definitely looked brutal.....but strangely appealing.....

Oh has he not FB ? Yeah I think the Celtman is a harder race than the city to summit. At least the path up Ben Nevis is well defined and well trodden.

My thoughts exactly Serena

a couple of my clubmates have done it twice and they loved it but to give it some context, one of them ran Mont Blanc this year and won city to summit. They've all done Bob Graham and the other is a kona qualifier.

All of them said it was bloody tough but an amazing event.

I very much like the sound of Celtman, and a friend had suggested doing it, but I'm slightly scared to watch it now

Ok, so I caved in and watched it.  Bloody awesome!

Think I might need just a wee smidge more training.  

But never say never.....................

It would be a massive challenge for me as i cant handle heights ive managed to run up Snowdon by some of the more established safer routes (ranger track) but striding edge reduced me to a gibbering jelly Anybody got a clue how scrambly technical the mountain stage is?

RBM - you could do the Brutal tri in Snowdonia ?
10/10/2013 at 08:51

I considered the Brutal but we have had a number if training camps up there over the years i absoltely love the area but it would be like going over old ground this Celtman thingy looks fantastic

Whippet if you need any crew to help, count me in  

This is run by the guys that own the Tri shop I used to go to, and I know a few people that have done it.  Brutal but brilliant I think. As a very rough estimate, some folk I know that did it took an extra 2-ish hours from a normal IM, so factor that in, though of course it isn't a given.

Max you could do this, you're a machine
